A haircut...

always has a way of making you feel refreshed. I've been growing my hair for a couple of months and today I thought I'd go and get it neatened up for the coming NYE celebrations.

The barber I go to is an old Greek man. I've been visiting his dodgy little single chair operation for 2 years now. He doesn't speak english very well. In fact, more often than not, I don't understand a single word he says. I just smile and nod. He's a friendly ol' fellow and does a great traditional hair cut. A $10 haircut. It's fantastic value, none of this Tony and Guy $100 bullshit for the same result.

Well today, I asked for my usual "Short back and sides thanks." He mumbled something that I didn't catch and then asked me if I wanted the usual #2 blade. I was pleased that he remembered that I like it very short around the back. With the flick of the switch the Wahl's buzzed and he commenced clippering my hair - on the very top of my head!

At this point I realised that what he had assumed was that I wanted a #2 crew cut. Hmmmm. I broke into a sweat. Really, I did. This was NOT how I wanted my hair cut. But alas, the damage was done. Without my beard, and now without my hair, my head is as round as the moon. ROUND... VERY ROUND!

Mate, it looked fine today. Come to think of it, it was that short the last time I saw you a few months back.

You are a very handsome man Muz, I just love your cheeky, somewhat crooked smile. I watch your video Blog entries at work where I don't have sound just to see that smile, I never ever thought about the shape of your head. You speak with your eyes and that smile is to die for. Lucky for me Evan has a huge and beautiful smile that works for me too.
Happy New Year.
